Keter vows to continue playing Jubilee politics

30 July 2016, 18:36 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Cabinet Secretary for Energy and Petroleum, Charles Keter has vowed to continue playing Jubilee Party politics despite raging criticism from opposition and political activists.

Speaking in Narumoru Kieni Nyeri County while launching Last Mile power connectivity program, Keter said he will popularize Jubilee Party and work with elected leaders.

“Am a politician and I must work together with elected leaders. Jubilee government has performed above mark,” said Keter.

He asked local residents to obtain Identification documents, register with the polls body and vote back Jubilee government in 2017.

The former Kericho Senator was accompanied by area MP Kanini Kega, Principal Secretaries Joseph Irungu and Andrew Kamau.

Keter said KES 200 million has been set aside for the first phase of connectivity in the vast constituency, noting that tens of transformers will be erected.

He said currently 149 households have been connected to the national grid.

“In 2013, electricity connection was at 27 per cent countrywide. In 2016, it stands at 55 per cent. The aim is to ensure every Kenyan is connected to power by year 2020,” said the CS.

He stated that the government has committed enough funds to enable Kenya Power Company to provide subsidy for electricity connections to Kenyans.

He observed that the increased power connections will spur economic development as he discouraged use of paraffin lamps saying they are hazardous.

On his part, MP Kanini Kega appreciated government efforts saying the launch of the project in his area was a milestone.

He asked residents to take advantage of the subsidised cost of KES 15,000 which can be paid partially and apply for connections.
